Bearaby

Founded by Kathrin Hamm, Bearaby is on a mission to create a calmer, more collected world. Our all-natural, hand-knit weighted blankets blend innovative design with planet-friendly practices, making sustainable self-care accessible to all.

A Bearaby blanket can help children and adults with autism cope with sensory overload and hyperactivity. The act of applying weight evenly all over the body has been proven to stimulate the production of serotonin (the happy hormone), reduce cortisol (the stress hormone), and increase melatonin, which helps you to fall and stay asleep. Our blankets are widely used and recommended by both parents and therapists, as a natural option for relaxation and rest.

Our blanket for adults, the Napper, is available in a 15, 20, and 25lb weight option, and our children’s blanket, the Nappling, weighs 8lb and is made in a closer knit to cuddle smaller bodies. All of our blankets are super soft, stylish, and easy to love!

Dreampad CAR

Dreampad Pillow

The Dreampad line of sleep and relaxation aids is the perfect, natural way to address the imbalance of stress. Research has shown that the right kind of music can help the body and mind relax and begin the wind-down process that is critical for sleep.

Dreampad has taken this a step further by delivering sleep music not through speakers, but through a gentle, low-frequency vibration that calms the nervous system and helps the body to relax. The vibration and music come through the pillow and create a unique sound experience that has been shown to positively affect our ability to get to sleep and stay asleep. Now available at select CVS stores. Visit online
